Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Who owned the property?
How much is the property worth and how much is outstanding on the mortgage
How old are the children?
How long has the fiancee lived with her?
Sorry - how long has the youngest lived with her father?
The fiance has a claim on the equity in the house because of the length of time they have lived together - he could potentially claim anywhere between 25% and 50% of the equity.
He is also entitled to at least 28 days written notice to leave - and indeed could argue for 56 days..
As a starting point the fiance should write to the husband saying that if no proper agreement is made for a reasonable notice period
to be given then he will apply to the court for an Occupation Order.
In addition he should put the husband on Notice that he intends to make an application under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act for a share of the equity unless a figure is negotiated with him
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
Who paid the bill for the funeral?
If her fiance pays the bill then he is entitled to the ashes.
